Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline Tribute

Saturday, May 7th at 7:30

 

The Johnny Cash & Patsy Cline Tribute Concert featuring Johnny Price & the Rhythm Riders and Dee Price present two tributes in one show; The Johnny Cash Tribute that closes the show and the Patsy Cline Tribute that opens the show. Their "Back in Black" Johnny Cash showcase is a world-class show that is wowing audiences everywhere they perform. 

 

The Rhythm Riders featuring Johnny Price is dedicated to preserving the original Cash sound. Johnny Price's uncanny vocal and physical resemblance to Johnny Cash, has marveled audiences from California to New York to Ireland. Johnny captures Johnny Cash's ability to deliver a story and a melody so well, that his audiences feel as though they have had a walk with the Man in Black himself. In 2005 Johnny entered the International Vocalist competition hosted in Las Vegas Nevada. Out of 5000 contestants performing in all genres, Johnny displayed his western roots and vocal ability placing 18th, proving this country boy can sing.

 

WS Holland, Johnny Cash's drummer of thirty-seven years came to California to perform with the Rhythm Riders band in 2008 and immediately invited them to come back to Tennessee to perform with him. About the band WS Holland said "Johnny Price and The Rhythm Riders is the best Cash tribute band I've ever heard. They are as good as the original. It doesn't get any better than The Rhythm Riders--"  Rhythm Riders vocalist Dee Price has sung and performed the music of Patsy Cline, June Carter and other giants of the country music world throughout California, New York and Ireland. For more than 15 years, Dee has regaled audiences with her solid vocals and easy demeanor. For 5 years Dee was accompanied by guitarist, Gil Reigers of the Johnny Mathis band. She has also performed with Norm Hamlet and Biff Adams of Merle Haggard's band and Truett Cunningham of Bob Wells Texas Playboys. Not to be outdone, Johnny's wife, Dee, also entered the International Vocalist competition, earning a 9th place finish in a field of 5000 contestants and 258 finalists. Together, they have researched the archives of American Roots music and assembled a band capable of recreating the sights and sounds of the hey-day of Country Western and Americana Roots music.

Keys and Breeze presents “Back to School”

Saturday, September 10, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.




 

As students everywhere return to classes in September 2016, Keys and Breeze (Alice Lenaghan, flute, and Jana Olvera, piano) will also return to the Woodland Opera House for another creatively themed performance full of exciting repertoire and fascinating commentary. On Saturday, September 10 at 7:30 p.m., Keys and Breeze will present a program titled “Back to School” featuring music for flute and piano, solo flute, and solo piano that celebrates learning and the new academic year as well as the change in the air as autumn approaches. Whether you’re a young concert enthusiast or simply a lifelong learner, you’ll experience an evening full of entertainment, education, and, as always, a few musical surprises!


Since 2005, the classical flute and piano duo Keys and Breeze has joyfully collaborated on a series of local concerts with a fresh, dynamic approach to live performance. The duo enjoys performing both standard and “off-the-beaten-path” repertoire, and strives to make classical concerts more audience-friendly by combining engaging (and often humorous!) verbal commentary with intriguing musical selections. In their distinctively themed performances, the performers move seamlessly from solo to ensemble repertoire, sharing information on composers and styles along with candid observations from the performers’ perspectives.


An active orchestral musician, Alice Lenaghan is principal flute of the Oakland East Bay Symphony, and has performed principal flute with the Detroit, Toledo, Flint and Napa Symphonies, and Sacramento and Michigan Operas. She also frequently presents solo recitals and has appeared as a soloist with orchestras, including the Folsom Lake Symphony and center stage at the California State Fair.


Lenaghan has served on the faculties of California State University-Chico, Albion College, Concordia and Oakland (MI) Universities and for many years directed the flute ensembles with the Sacramento Youth Symphony. She holds a doctorate in flute performance from the University of Michigan in addition to performance degrees from Western Michigan University and the Oberlin Conservatory of Music.


Pianist Jana LaHood Olvera is active as a teacher and as a solo and collaborative artist. She earned degrees in piano performance and pedagogy from Bradley University and the University of Illinois and also studied piano at the graduate level at Indiana University. Olvera earned her doctorate of musical arts degree in piano performance from the University of Iowa, and was also an assistant professor of piano at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.


In addition to local collaborative piano performances, Olvera has also presented several solo programs at the Woodland Opera House, including “Animalia,” a family-oriented solo piano recital, and “Simply Romantic,” featuring favorite 19th century repertoire. Olvera teaches intermediate and advanced level piano in Woodland and also is staff pianist at University Covenant Church in Davis.


Tickets for the performance are $15 in advance for adults, $20 at the door. For students under 17, tickets are $7 in advance, $10 at the door.  Click here to purchase your reserved seats
